About this trip

The Hendersonville Greenway has a multitude of habitats that make for a great day of birding. The city has gone through great lengths to make a useable green space for both humans and wildlife. On one end is Jackson Park, arguably the best migrant trap in WNC, but birding can be quite good in the late fall as well. On the other end is Berkeley Park, with one of the largest and most accessible wetlands in the mountains. Nestled in the middle of the Greenway are several pollinator gardens that have recently had big numbers of both finches and sparrows. 


We will start the morning at Jackson Park looking for an assortment of sparrows and woodpeckers, plus Winter Wren, Hermit Thrush, and anything else that happens to be there. Then we will move on to the pollinator fields in search of finches, more sparrows, Cedar Waxwings, and raptors. We will end at a large wetland looking for more woodpeckers, ducks, Belted Kingfisher, and herons. This wetland has only recently been discovered for birding so there’s no telling what sort of goodies may show up here. 


Some of the birds we hope to see are: Wood Duck, 6 species of woodpecker, 8-10 species of sparrows, Cedar Waxwing, Cooper’s Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk, Hermit Thrush, Winter Wren, and of course anything else we can find.

Lovely scenery, great group of people. Not as many birds as I hoped for, couldhave used more time in the field and less shopping in towns, but I enjoyed seeing the old castle. Well planned itinerary in terms fo the loop we made. Guides very knowledgeable.

It turned out to be a beautiful day, not too hot, and it was a small group. We saw or heard some great birds like the Canada warbler.The guide was so knowledgeable, as well as pleasant. Thanks for a great day

Thanks so much to Kevin Burke, our guide for Southern Arizona in July. He did a fantastic job of curating a wonderful experience. His birding skills, infectious good humor, in-depth preparation and flawless execution made it a perfect trip. The birds are important, but the experience is much more than that. He has a real talent and mindset for understanding and delivering what the client wants. He put us on rare birds. We made the ABA Rare Bird Alert on 3 different days. He put me on 43 life birds bringing my total for 2022 to 446 and counting. I’ll see him again on a future trip.
